The instruction in the School of Commerce is based on three 
fundamental aims: first, to give students a comprehensive, many- 
sided survey of business facts and experience; second, to develop a 
power of accurate analysis which will prepare the student to think 
complicated business problems through to the end ; third, to maintain 
an atmosphere in which large business problems will be regarded in 
a public-spirited way. 

The instruction is so planned as to train men for business in the 
same manner as men are trained to become physicians and lawyers. 
Business facts are assembled and studied, and business principles 
ascertained and emphasized in the same way that facts and principles 
are treated in other fields of knowledge. 


Men who have been successful in a legitimate business have in 
some way been trained for that success. They may have been trained 
by the business itself, but if they have, years of experience have 
brought them to the point where they observe certain definite prin- 
ciples of business action. Consciously or unconsciously, these prin- 
ciples are applied to the solution of problems just as principles are 
applied to the solution of problems in law, medicine, and other pro- 


To learn from trial and error, from the mistakes of the daily 
routine, is costly. Only a short time ago, lawyers, doctors and engi- 
neers were being trained in the school of experience. Early chemists 
were limited to the results of their individual observations and 
research. But today no one would think of sending a prospective 
chemist to a laboratory to work out his preparation at random without 
the benefit of the experience and the scientific principles already 
achieved. As the principles of chemistry and other sciences have been 
derived from experiments and observations of individuals, so there is 
need of bringing together the results of past experience in business and 
of making available for the future the principles of business manage- 
ment which successful men have developed. The wastefulness of 
leaving each individual to learn from costly experience what others 
have discovered over and over again, has brought the keenest execu- 
tives to realize that business training is a fundamental necessity. 



The policy of the School of Commerce is to develop as rapidly 
as possible such training as is calculated to meet the need of future 
executives. The work of the specialist is not minimized, but it is 
recognized that the training of a specialist is subordinate to the 
training of the executive. 


More than 650 students were registered in evening courses in 
I 9 I 3 _I 9 I 4- Among these students the following groups were repre- 
sented: 1. Persons with a fair preparatory education who desire to 
supplement their experience with specialized business studies in order 
to qualify for responsible positions. 2. Persons holding fairly respon- 
sible positions, who need the broadening influence of a general busi- 
ness training. 3. Persons holding exceptionally responsible positions 
who would profit by a special course in their field. 4. Recent college 
graduates, whose college course did not include a business training, 
and who now find themselves handicapped by their lack of business 
knowledge. 5. Mature men who in some measure have overcome the 
handicap of an inadequate general education but who want both to 
enlarge their general education and to secure specialized training in 
order to increase their opportunity for growth. 


The teaching staff of the School consists of: 1. Persons whose 
profession it is to teach and who are devoting their lives to the study 
of business. 2. Successful business men who are secured for special 
courses in subjects upon which they are able to speak with authority. 
Students therefore are in a position to benefit from contact both 
with the trained investigator and the man of affairs. 


Northwestern University is in an exceptional position to carry on 
university training for business. The location of its building in the 
heart of "The Great Central Market of Chicago" makes 
available unexcelled material for study and observation. 

In addition to its own library, provided through the generosity of 
certain Chicago business men, the Elbert H. Gary Library of Law, 
housed in the same building, is probably the most complete west of the 
Allegheny Mountains. Besides its own facilities, the School is 
within five minutes walk of the Public Library of Chicago and of the 
John Crerar Library, to both of which students have free access. 




The following plan of study is recommended for persons who wish to pursue a 
regular evei ing course in Business Administration, Accounting, Advertising and Selling, 
Banking ard Finance, or Factory Management.

Description of Evening Courses 
Accounting * 

One of the results of commercial development during the last 
generation has been the growth in importance of the accounting pro- 
fession. A knowledge of accountancy is becoming almost indispensable 
to the successful conduct of every business. Business efficiency 
demands, moreover, that the professional accountant shall be a man 
of broad and fundamental training and of recognized professional 
standing, parallel to that of the lawyer and the physician. The close 
connection of the School of Commerce with the leading men of the 
profession enables it to set a high standard of professional training.

principles are developed until a modern accounting system has been 
worked out in detail. As additional work, problems and questions 
are assigned for home study.

Pennsylvania, and other states are thoroughly analyzed and discussed. 
Instruction in the classroom is largely individual. Students' papers 
are criticized by the instructor. Correct solutions to problems and 
answers to questions are given in lecture note form for future refer-

cussion of the "how" and "why" of the solutions to problems assigned. 

To secure the maximum amount of study and application of 
higher accounting principles, students enrolling in the Quiz class 
should also take Accounting III unless the latter subject has been 
taken previously.

and training necessary to prepare for the C. P. A. examination. 

Accounting VI — Factory Cost 

Professor Andersen 
Monday evenings, 7 to 9 

This subject is intended to give the students a thorough knowledge 
of cost accounting principles supplemented by an abundance of prac- 
tical illustrations. Cost Systems of several large and representative 
manufacturing companies will be thoroughly analyzed and their use 
and value to the executive officials discussed. The work of the cost 
accountant and its relation to that of the factory organizer will 
receive consideration. 

The work in the first semester will deal largely with the study of 
cost finding principles, while that in the second semester will have 
to do chiefly with practical cost accounting, including the designing of 


forms. In both the first and second semesters considerable home 
study work and collateral reading will be required. The aim of 
the course is to acquaint the students with modern and up-to-date 
methods which can be applied in their respective lines of business. 


Elements of cost — material, labor and expenses. Cost accounting 
features of purchase, receipt and issue of raw and finished materials

graphic charts in the final assembly of cost data and statistics will 
receive special consideration. 

A number of lectures on the various phases of Cost Accounting 
will be given by practicing cost accountants. 

This subject is open only to students who have completed the 
work in either the Intermediate or Advanced Accounting classes, or 
who have already had practical experience along cost accounting lines.

Professor Howard 
Thursday evenings, 7 to 9 

The subject aims to give the student an acquaintance with the 
elementary principles and practices of finance, especially as they 
concern the ordinary business man. A study is made of the causes

Statistical Methods in Business 

Professor Secrist 
Friday evenings, 6 130 to 9 130, first semester 

The course is designed to prepare business men to use discrim- 
inatingly the most approved statistical methods in the analysis of 
business problems. The uses and abuses of such methods are carefully 
studied by means of problems drawn from the fields of business and 
general economics. Both lecture and laboratory methods are followed 
throughout the course. Students are required, under the direction of 
the instructor, to apply standard statistical measures to economic and 
business facts, and to formulate judgments as to the proper applica- 
tion of each to the particular problems at hand. 

Some attention is given to the development of the science of 
statistics, and to the causes for and significance of the recent advance 
in the appreciation of facts when dealing both with the private and 
with the public sides of business. 

The following paragraphs are suggestive of the nature of the 
topics to which attention is directed: 


(a) The Problem. The statistical possibilities of suggested 
economic and business problems, together with an appraisement of 
the scope, accuracy, and completeness, of available data; the diffi- 
culties of defining units of measurement, and the necessity of elim- 
inating foreign and extraneous matter. 

(b) Getting Material. The preparation and use of schedules, 
direct questioning, hearsay evidence, examination of records, com- 
parability and reliability of the facts recorded, the methods of esti- 
mates, sampling, averaging, etc. 

(c) Preparation of Material. The treatment of material col- 
lected or arrangement of facts secured so as to present them in the 
most forceful and discriminating manner for the purposes desired ; 
consideration of tabulation, graphic methods of presentation, uses and 
abuses of averages, dispersion, correlation, use of index numbers, etc. 

(d) Interpretation of Material and Preparation of Reports. 
Practice is given in the work assigned for laboratory purposes and 
in other problems in passing upon the reliability of data, in criticising 
the forms of presentation, in testing the accuracy of the conclusions 
drawn from data, in formulating statistical cautions, in putting into 
oral and written form conclusions from a given mass of statistical 
facts properly arranged, in standardizing statistical devices, etc. 


Movement is life. Transportation is a vital feature of local and 
national economic and social conditions. Its fundamental importance 
from these aspects has involved transportation in politics. Chicago is 
the largest transportation center in the world. A large population 
depends for subsistence upon railroad employment. Chicago is like- 
wise the commercial and industrial center of the West, and its estab- 
lishments owe their existence to the facilities afforded by the rail- 
roads. A demand exists for competent employes both among the 
railroads and the other industries. By recognizing transportation as 
a distinct branch of study the School of Commerce emphasizes the 
principles which lead to the highest degree of public comfort, con- 
venience and welfare in the transportation service. 

Transportation Law 

Mr. Kerr 
Thursday evenings, 7 to 9, first semester 

Instruction in this subject comprises approximately fifteen lectures 
on specific topics. Each lecture is discussed by the class and final 


examinations are based on the entire course. The preliminary arrange- 
ment of topics is as follows: American railway net, including begin- 
ning, growth and final development of the railroad systems of this 
country; economic and social functions, including the importance of 
transportation facilities to modern conditions; physical plant and 
equipment, including a survey of the relation between rights of way, 
equipment and terminals and reliable and successful service; eco- 
nomics of railroad operation, including use of traffic statistics; 
organization of operating personnel, including centralization of 
authority for efficient operation ; liability of common carriers, includ- 
ing responsibility for loss, damage and delay; basis and mechanism 
of rates and fares, including rate theories, associations and territories, 
and schedules; accounts and reports, including outline of accounts 
prescribed by Interstate Commerce Commission; labor and arbitra- 
tion ; regulation, including an analysis of state and federal regulating 
laws; government ownership, including summaries of arguments in 
favor of and opposed to the experiment in this country. 

Interstate Commerce Law and Procedure 

Mr. Kerr 

Thursday evenings, 7 to 9, second semester 

This subject reviews the development and present status of the 
interstate commerce law. It consists of approximately fifteen lectures 
on specific topics, each of which will be discussed by the class. Final 
examinations are based on the entire course. The preliminary 
arrangement of topics is as follows: Origin and development of 
Act to Regulate Commerce, including Cullom, Hepburn and Mann- 
Elkins laws ; excessive rates, including commission and court decisions 
on the absolute level of rates; rate discriminations, including dis- 
criminations betv/een persons, between commodities and between 
localities; long and short haul clause, including authorizations under 
1 9 10 amendment; commodities clause, including court decisions; 
pooling, including application to railroads of Sherman anti-trust law ; 
valuation, including summary of state valuations and current valua- 
tion of federal commission; service, including terminal, tap line and 
industrial services; jurisdiction over allied services; stock and bond 
issues, including summaries of laws and recent abuses. 


English I 

Professor Smart 
Wednesday evenings, 7 to 9 

This subject is intended to meet the needs of students who are 
not fully prepared for the work of English II. It gives a rapid, 
systematic review of the fundamental elements of the language, and 
lays the foundation for a more advanced study of the principles of 
correct oral and written expression. In the first semester, a thorough 
review of the essential elements of English grammar is given. The 
work is made as non-technical and practical as possible. The work 
of the second semester consists of a review of punctuation and an 
introduction to the simpler principles of sentence structure. For all 
except those who have had similar training elsewhere the course 
should precede English II. This subject is not credited toward the 
diploma in Commerce. 

English II 

Professor Smart 
Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 

This subject is a continuation of English I, but may be taken by 
anyone who has had at least three years of high school work in 
English, or the equivalent. All students who have had less than three 
years high school work in English and wish to register for English II, 
must qualify by taking an examination given by Professor Smart on 
Thursday evening, September 24. The first semester and part of 
the second semester are devoted to the study of advanced sentence 
structure, paragraphing, and organization of material, supplemented 
by practice in the writing of themes. The purpose of this work is 
to train the student in ease, correctness, and effectiveness of expres- 
sion. Without such preliminary training, satisfactory work in the 
more technical forms of business writing is impossible; with it, the 
student can readily adapt himself to the requirements of his particular 
line of work. In the latter part of the second semester, some of the 
more technical forms of business correspondence are discussed, and 
drill in writing them is given. 


Organization of material ; structure of the paragraph ; review 
of punctuation. 


Sentence structure: violations of correct form; unity; arrange- 
ment and relation of parts. 


Effectiveness in sentence structure; enlarging one's vocabulary; 
common mistakes in the use of words. 

Business correspondence: freshness and naturalness in style; use 
of forms; sales letters; follow-up letters; collection letters. 

Students may enter both of these classes for the entire year, or, 
with the approval of the instructor, for either semester. To secure 
the best results, however, the student should enter at the beginning 
of the year. 

English III — Public Speaking 

Mr. Weaver 
Wednesday evenings, 7 to 9 

The aim of this subject, in the theory and practice of effective 
public speaking, is to stimulate and develop clear, logical thinking, 
and a forceful, adequate expression of thought. This work should 
appeal not only to him whose profession emphasizes the necessity of 
frequent appearance before public assemblies, but also to the man 
who wishes to broaden the field of his influence by acquiring power 
and facility in the expression of his ideas. 


The* work of the first semester is based largely on Phillip's 
Effective Speaking. The class is required not only to learn the 
rules which govern effective speech, but constant attention is given 
to practical, original application of the principles as they are taken 
up one by one. Special emphasis is laid on: 

The general ends of speech; the principle of reference to experi- 
ence; the four forms of support; the importance of statement of aim 
and central idea ; the preparation of a complete outline for the speech ; 
the function of introduction and conclusion in speech making; and 
the relationship between speaker and audience. 


The work of this semester consists in the writing and delivery 
of speeches from models. Various kinds of speeches are studied and 
the students are asked to prepare and deliver before the class examples 


of the different types. An effort is made to give each student as 
many chances as possible to stand before the class and cultivate con- 
fidence and strength in the formulation and presentation of his 
thoughts and ideas. Constant reference is made to the principles 
taken up during the first semester. The following kinds of speeches 
furnish the basis for study: 

The Eulogy, 

The Commemorative Address, 

The Inaugural Address, 

The Political Address, 

The Forensic Address, 

The After-Dinner Speech. 

Commercial French 

Mr. Vaccariello 
Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 

The fact that French is the official language of many European 
countries and is used in many other parts of the world where our 
foreign commerce is assuming increasing importance makes a knowl- 
edge of French indispensable in many branches of foreign trade. 
The main feature of the work in French will be a thorough drill in 
French grammar and composition. The course is intended for those 
who desire a practical knowledge of modern French for business 

Commercial Spanish 

Mr. Vaccariello 
The growing importance of our commercial interests in countries 
where Spanish is spoken, due to our insular possessions and the 
relations of the United States w T ith the South American Republics, 
makes a knowledge of Spanish indispensable to many lines of busi- 
ness activity. The work in Spanish will begin with a thorough 
training in pronunciation and conversation. Appropriate stress will 
be laid on the technical vocabulary of trade, and on Spanish forms 
of commercial correspondence. Thorough drill in grammar and in 
composition will be an important feature of the work. Given in 
alternate years with Commercial French. Not given in IQ14-IQ15. 


General Information 


Applicants for admission to the evening courses, whether as 
diploma or special students, must be at least eighteen years of age, 
and those under twenty-one must have completed a four-year course 
in an approved high school. Applicants must file with the secretary 
certificates showing the nature and amount of their preliminary 
education, and must also submit a properly attested detailed statement 
setting forth their business experience. This statement must give 
evidence of sufficient maturity and training to enable the applicant to 
pursue the work with profit. 


Candidates for the diploma must give evidence of satisfactory 
experience in business for a period of at least one full year. They 
must have completed twelve subjects, requiring normally four even- 
ings a week for three years, and including a full year course each in 
Accounting, Business Law, Economics, and Money and Banking. In 
addition, they are required to take English II unless they give evi- 
dence by examination of satisfactory proficiency in English. Of the 
twelve subjects, at least nine must be other than languages. English I 
and Bookkeeping are not credited toward a diploma. 

For students whose other duties will not permit them to carry 
four subjects a week, a four-year course of three evenings a week is 


A candidate for a diploma, offering advance credit from other 
institutions, is required to pursue at least four business subjects 
throughout a full school year under the direction of the faculty of the 
School of Commerce. No advance credit toward the diploma will be 
allowed except for subjects which fall clearly in the field of business. 


Persons who are qualified for admission but are not in a position 
to undertake a regular course, may register for any particular even- 
ing subjects for which they are prepared. In limited numbers such 
persons may register for day work upon vote of the faculty. Work 


completed in individual subjects will be duly credited should the 
student later wish to qualify for the diploma. 


Beginning August i, members of the faculty are in the office 
of the School to assist students and prospective students in arranging 
their courses of study. Every applicant for admission is urged to 
avail himself of this opportunity for a personal interview. 

Each student and applicant must fill out a registration blank 
and file it at the Office. This must be approved by a member of the 
faculty as to the selection of subjects, and by the secretary as to 
general requirements. If it is approved, a notice of acceptance is 
mailed, together with tuition bill (see Instructions for Payment of 
Tuition, page 47). This notice indicates the date of the first session 
in each class, and the lecture hall in which the class meets. 


Regular class work begins Wednesday, September 30. 

"Opening Night," Friday, September 25, is in the nature of an 
informal reception, affording prospective members of the School an 
opportunity to meet students and members of the faculty. 


Examinations are held at the close of each semester, in the studies 
of that semester, and must be taken by all students who expect to 
receive credit for their work. Students who are absent from a regu- 
lar examination may arrange with the instructor for a special exam- 
ination. For such special examination a fee of one dollar is charged. 


At the end of each semester the standing of a student in each of 
his courses is reported by the instructor to the Secretary and is en- 
tered of record. Standing is expressed, according to proficiency, in 
grades A, B, C, D, E, F. 

Grade A denotes superior scholarship ; grade B, good scholarship ; 
grade C, fair scholarship; grade D, poor scholarship; grade E, a 
condition which may be removed by a second examination; grade 
F, a failure removable only by repetition of the subject in the class. 
Work of grades A, B, and C is counted toward a diploma. Work 
of grade D may also be counted toward a diploma, but not more 


than one-sixth of the work offered to meet the requirements for 
graduation may be of this grade. 

Work reported as of grade E must be made good at a second 
examination or must be taken again in the classroom if credit is to 
be obtained, but work of this grade cannot be raised by examination 
to a grade higher than D. Work of grade D cannot be raised to a 
higher grade by examination. 

Work reported "incomplete" at the end of any semester, and not 
made good by the beginning of the corresponding semester of the fol- 
lowing year, can thereafter be given credit only by repetition in the 

At the end of the school year, written report of grades received 
is mailed to the student, and, if he desires, to his employer or other 
person whom he may designate. 


A prize of one hundred dollars, the gift of Mr. Joseph Schaffner, 
is awarded annually to that evening student in the School of Com- 
merce who upon graduation has made the best record during a mini- 
mum of two years' work. Only those candidates are considered 
eligible for the prize who have taken in the evening or late afternoon 
classes in Chicago, three-fourths of the twelve units required for the 


Four Library Scholarships of seventy-five dollars each are open 
to students in the School. They will be awarded, if possible, to 
students who have been registered in the School on the basis of their 
previous work and their ability to undertake the limited amount of 
work required. Applications must be in before the first of August. 


The School of Commerce conducts a Bureau of Employment, 
through which the attention of students is brought to the demands 
of the business community. All students are requested to register in 
the bureau at the time they enroll, in order that the School may 
serve the students and the business community to the best advantage. 

The efficacy of efforts in behalf of students will depend to a 
very large extent upon their co-operation. Information which may 
come to any student concerning positions to be filled should be 
brought promptly to the attention of the Bureau, together with such 
details as may be secured. 


Address communications to the secretary of the Bureau of Em- 
ployment, School of Commerce. 


By act of the General Assembly passed May 15, 1903, provision 
is made for a state examination for the degree of Certified Public 
Accountant. Copies of the state law and the rules governing the 
examination, and questions given in previous examinations since 1903, 
may be secured at the office of the School of Commerce. Attention 
is called to the requirement of the law that an applicant for the 
Certified Public Accountant examination must be a graduate of a 
high school with a four-year course of instruction, or present to the 
Board of Examiners evidence of an education equivalent thereto. 

The administration of the law is placed upon the State University. 
Information concerning examinations may be secured by addressing 
Board of Certified Public Accountant Examiners, Urbana, Illinois. 

Student Social Organizations 


Since the organization of the School of Commerce in 1908, there 
has existed the "Student Organization." The Commerce Club of 
Northwestern University succeeded the "Student Organization" and 
was incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois in the fall 
of 1913. The object of the Commerce Club is "to promote the 
interests of the students and alumni, and the welfare of the School 
of Commerce." The Commerce Club is the organization which 
unites the undergraduates, alumni and special students and makes 
for a greater School of Commerce. It helps to establish the student's 
identity with the University. Through the potent influence of the 
members, holding positions in the various business houses of Chicago, 
higher standards in business and a scientific attitude toward all busi- 
ness problems are being developed. 

The Commerce Club Room, known as the "Commerce Campus," 
is located on the fourth floor of the Northwestern University Build- 
ing. It is a spacious room, furnished to make an ideal club room 
for the students. 


The women students of the School of Commerce organized in 
the spring of 191 3 under the name "The Lydians." The purpose 


of the society is to bring the women of the School into closer associa- 
tion, to strengthen their identity with the School, and in other ways to 
promote their mutual interests. The Lydians have a comfortable and 
attractive club room located across the corridor from the office of the 


The Debating Club was organized by a group of students of 
the School of Commerce in the fall of 191 1. Formal debates are 
arranged for the weekly meetings held during the school year, and 
all members are required to participate at frequent intervals. The 
Club offers an excellent opportunity for those students in the School 
who wish to train themselves in the art of effective speaking.

Lecture Note Fees. A fee sufficient to cover the cost of prepar- 
ing and manifolding notes in certain subjects is entered with the 
tuition bill at the beginning of each semester. This fee, depending 
on the subject, varies from $3.00 to $5.00 a semester. The subject 
matter of many of the courses offered in the School of Commerce, 
notably Accounting, has been prepared in such a way as to take the 
place of textbooks. 

Matriculation and Diploma Fees. A matriculation fee of $5.00 
is charged all students who qualify for the diploma, and is payable 
at the beginning of their last year. The diploma fee of $10.00 is 
payable at the close of the final year, prior to Commencement. 


A bill, covering tuition for the semester and lecture note fees, 
is mailed the student upon approval of his registration. This bill 
may be paid as follows: 


( i ) At the office of the Cashier, in the Rotunda of the North- 
western University Building, between 9 and 5 o'clock; Saturdays 
between 9 and 1. 

(2) By check or money order, payable to Northwestern Uni- 
versity, and mailed to the office of the School of Commerce or to the 
Cashier, accompanied by tuition bill.

No tuition is refunded by Northwestern University except 
upon certification by physician that serious illness has compelled the 
student to withdraw permanently from the School. Credit on tuition 
cannot be extended from one year to the next. 


For the convenience of its students, the School of Commerce 
maintains a book store, where the textbooks used in the various 
classes may be procured if desired. The book store is located in 
Room 411, directly opposite the entrance to the general office of the

Day Courses and Degree 

By vote of the Board of Trustees, January 9, 19 12, a course 
of study leading to the degree of Bachelor in Business Administration 
was approved. The plan outlined contemplates a combined five-year 
course with three years' work in Business Administration following 
the first two years of regular college work. This course involves a 
thorough inquiry into the principles of business organization and 
management, and the application of principles to specific problems. 
It comprises a careful and comprehensive survey of the different 
branches of business, followed by a more intensive study in some 
particular line. 


As a minimum requirement for admission to the degree course, 
applicants must present evidence of having completed work equiva- 
lent to entrance requirements and two full years of study in a uni- 
versity, college, professional or scientific school of approved standing. 
They will be expected to have completed, during the two college 
years, a full year course covering the Principles of Economics. Per- 
sons will not be permitted to begin the work of the degree course 
unless their college record gives evidence of capacity to undertake 
serious professional study. 

Requirements for the Degree Bachelor in Business 

Persons of good ability who enter the School with the minimum 
requirement will usually be able to complete the work for the degree 
in three years. Persons who enter with three years of college work 
may, by meeting special requirements, be able to complete the work 
in two years. Candidates offering advance credit from other institu- 
tions are required to pursue at least one full year's work under the 
direction of the faculty of the School of Commerce. 

The degree will not be awarded merely as result of pursuing a 
specified number of courses. Students will be expected to meet the 
requirements imposed with the same professional spirit and with a 
measure of precision demanded in well-regulated business houses. As 
the course progresses they should acquire ability to analyze business 
situations and to apply fundamental principles to the solution of 
practical business problems. If after a reasonable time a student's 


work does not give promise of effectiveness in the business field, he 
will be discouraged from continuing the course. 

Formal application for the B.B.A. degree must be made before 
November I of the academic year in which the degree is granted. 
Every candidate for the degree will be required, during his last year, 
to undertake a piece of constructive investigation relating to the par- 
ticular business which he intends to enter. The subject of this 
investigation must be filed with the secretary of the School of Com- 
merce not later than December I, and a thesis containing the results 
must be presented not later than May 15. 

Relation of Degree Students to Evening Courses in the 
School of Commerce 

The major portion of the formal class work required for the 
degree Bachelor in Business Administration will be offered on the 
college campus in Evanston. Students, however, will usually pursue 
at least one subject in the evening courses offered in Chicago. The 
day and evening work will be so arranged as not to encumber the 
schedule of students, and it is believed that a moderate amount of 
participation in the same work by persons with business experience 
on the one hand and persons whose training has been primarily 
academic on the other, will be mutually beneficial. 

In exceptional cases, mature students occupying responsible posi- 
tions who can satisfy the requirement concerning preliminary educa- 
tion may be able to secure the business courses required for the degree 
exclusively by evening work. The minimum time in such cases will 
be five years. 

Combined Liberal Arts and Business Administration Course 

Persons who are about to enter college with the thought of 
following their college work with a course in business administration 
will find the curriculum and the requirements for a degree in the 
College of Liberal Arts of Northwestern University well adapted 
to their needs. Such persons will be expected to complete the required 
subjects of the college course during their Freshman and Sophomore 

Students whose record in the first two years of college work 
shows them qualified to undertake the Business Administration course, 
may register for that course at the beginning of the third college 
year. Students so registered, however, will continue with their 
business work on the College Campus. In general, they will be able 


to secure both a college degree and the degree in Business Admin- 
istration by a combined course covering five years of study. 

Combined Five-year Course Leading to the Bachelor of 

Science Degree at the End of Four Years, and to the 

Bachelor in Business Administration Degree 

at the End of Five Years 

Students who meet the requirements for entrance to the College

ments for the degree Bachelor of Science by pursuing the following

The courses in Government above scheduled constitute a minor. Students 
may, however, take minor work in Mathematics or in Psychology if they are 
preparing for a business career for which those subjects furnish a more 
necessary preparation. Other minors may be accepted with faculty consent. 

Fifth Year Leading to the Degree Bachelor in Business 

The work of the Business Administration course proper is ex- 
pected to cover a period of three years. In order to qualify for the 
degree Bachelor in Business Administration at the end of the third 
year (the fifth year of the combined course), it will be necessary for 
a student to secure a position and to be employed in the line of 
business for which he is preparing, during the summer intervening 
between the last two years. Except for required subjects in the 
combined course, the arrangement of courses in the last two years 
is flexible and will be adjusted with each student in such a way as 
to meet his particular need. In all cases, however, emphasis in the 
last year will be laid primarily on individual work and independent 
investigation in some special field of business research.

Adjustment of courses, intended to meet the particular needs of 
students preparing for Transportation, Insurance, and other careers, 
will appear in a later bulletin. 

*The courses in History so far as possible should be related to the 
countries in which the student expects to be employed. Wherever pos- 
sible, students preparing for foreign trade will find it profitable to devote 
an additional year to their preparation in order to give more time for 
research and for more mature study of the resources, institutions, and 
•customs of the countries to which they are going.

Seminar and Research Courses 

Economic Seminar (Economics D) — This course involves an 
original investigation of some specific topic extending over a complete 
school year. The topic assigned to each student as far as possible 
will deal with some phase of a fundamental economic problem related 
to the business field which the student intends to enter. The purpose 
of the course, however, is disciplinary rather than informational. 
The students will meet together under the leader of the seminar for 
the discussion of general questions involving the technique of investi- 
gation, such as the use of original materials, taking of notes, mar- 
shalling of facts, but each student will also do his individual work 
under the direction of a member or members of the faculty to whose 
specialty the topic is most closely related. The course is intended 
to give the students training in the use of original data and in draw- 
ing correct and accurate conclusions based on all of the facts in a 
limited field of inquiry. Credit 3-6 hours. The normal registration 
of fourth year students in Business Administration will be four hours. 

Advanced Seminars in Special Fields (Commercial Organization, 
Factory Management, Banking and Finance, Accounting, etc.) — 
The organization of these courses is similar to that of Economics D 
just described, except that the work of each student will be entirely 
individual and under the direct supervision of that member of the 
faculty in whose field the subject lies. The purpose of the courses 
will be to go farther than is possible in the seminar course above 
described, into the investigation of some fundamental problem, par- 
ticularly from the standpoint of business organization in the special 
field. Students will normally precede these courses with Eco- 
nomics D. 

Problems and Field Work — As in the case of seminars, the work 
of each student in these courses will be individual. They are in- 
tended to give an opportunity for students in their fifth year to come 
in contact with some of the actual problems of organization and 
management as found in an individual establishment or group of 
establishments. In some cases, the work of the course will be based 
upon the experience obtained by actual employment during the pre- 
ceding summer. In other cases, the results of summer work will be 
combined with work in the nature of apprenticeship carried on by 
the student contemporaneously with the fifth year of the Business 
Administration course. 


Other College Subjects 

The courses described below are selected from among those 
offered by the several departments indicated as the ones likely to be 
of most value to students preparing for business. Those which appear
